in the...MOMENT Scrapbook Page

Have started playing along with Color Combo Galore because their latest color challenges are right up my alley.

I am still in love with geometric shapes and how you can "make your own paper" with paper so had lots of fun combining several sheets into this pattern.

The purple paper was originally white and I used an ink pad and shimmer paint to help create the color I needed. It's hard to photograph all shimmery, but I assure you it's lovely. 

You can also see my little verdigris butterfly. I took inspiration off the frames in the photo. 

This page I made was a celebration of how much time THE MAN and I put into being "US" together. I never want to be one of those couples where the kids head off to bigger and better things and we look at each other saying, Um...who are YOU? 

Love the Prima stuff I used and the antique rick rack. I was originally going to actually use pieces, but it was far prettier in one piece. 

And my title...I am happy to report that Bird is the Word is back with challenges. So, their challenge this month is MOMENT! Love it! 

Happy Tuesday!
